Thats right, The Flash and Supergirl will be meeting once again, however, this time it’ll be filled with singing! The fans asked for a musical, demanded it in fact, and Greg Berlanti is finally delivering it! Of course, we all know there are some incredibly talented cast members in each show. Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist both appeared on Glee, while Jesse L. Martin played a major role on Broadway.

Greg announced the news at CW’s TCA presentation, saying that the two-episode musical crossover will land in the back half of the season, around episode 13 or 14. Whilst they want to compose at least one original song per episode, the rest will be pre-existing. Know any songs Barry was meant to sing? Let them know as they’re currently taking suggestions!
If you’re worried over how many times the characters will break out in to song, or how they can put the music in and have a storyline that still make sense, don’t stress it! The producers have been putting a lot of thoughts in to how it will play on screen. “My sense is we’ll be very careful about how they break into song and there will probably be an element of being in some character’s head at the time.”
“When they’re not acting or flying or punching or exploding things, they’re singing.”
The question now is, who will not be singing? Danielle Panabaker has asked to opt-out after her karaoke shenanigans on season one of The Flash.
If you’re not a fan of musicals, no need to worry, as they have an even bigger crossover in the works between The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, arriving this fall!
